One of the good things about the Dead is how they can point to all sorts of music . Classical and jazz, among them . I can come off pretty snooty sometimes, so I have to watch being too pretentious, so I mention it when appropriate to the topic .I sold classical records for so long, got to talk music to lots of folks ( did send you the link to the article the local rag did ?) . Most of my friends who are classical nuts, or jazzbos were my former customers . I don't try to push the music on the uninterested ( not "everybody digs Bill Evans..).. I wish more people were (did), but people who are into the Dead's music , stand a much better chance than most to be exploratory , especially jazz .
If you wish to talk more about this , I'm not sure what is the Archive Protocol, rules etc concerning "contact Information" (?) E-mail ? Facebook ?

Was just listening to 'On A Clear Day You Can See Forever' earlier today from Bill Evans' 'Alone'. Must be somethin' in the air . . .

Your eccentric punctuation bears an uncanny similarity to that of Dudley D. (Or vice versa - I'm not seeking to establish precedence.) Have you guys been comparing notes?

Well done above . Instructional and razor like . As if they really deserve it .
Maybe instead of patenting Supercilious Heavy Death , I could do a whole " new " English punctuation thingy . Of course , DD and I would have to come to some ' arraignment '.

DD , let's meet down by the docks tonight .
Alone.
We have to talk .

"DD and I would have to come to some ' arraignment '."

Don't you mean arrangement - arraignment being summonsed before a court to face charges? (Although that could fit too under the circumstances...)

... the charges are the abuse of the King's English !
It has been a long time since Collage ( 81 ) , and my spelling, and grammar, etc. have all been forgotten in my long years at Tower . So I beg forgiveness for my "creative " use of the language , which is sometimes my own , and sometimes just ignorance , or clumsiness ( to say nothing of my bad eyesight ).
Back when I was in 7th grade, in the days when they were not afraid to hurt your "self esteem", we had these evaluation tests, I tested with a 12th grade vocabulary, and a 4th grade spelling ! Spellcheck is my best friend !
And Micah we meet at pier 68, at 1pm to plan this "changes" .
